SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS RADIO) – A San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman has been arrested for domestic violence, according to the San Jose Police Department.

On Monday, Charles Omenihu was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for misdemeanor domestic violence after an argument with a woman who claimed that the player is her boyfriend.

Just before 4:40 p.m., officers responded to the 300 block of Santana Row where they spoke with the woman who alleged that Omenihu pushed her to the ground. Police did not see any visible physical injuries and the woman declined medical attention, but she did say her arm was in pain.

Omenihu, 25, gave a statement and was cooperative with authorities at the scene. In addition to the misdemeanor domestic violence arrest, an on-call superior court judge served the 49ers' defensive end an emergency protective restraining order.

As of Tuesday, Omenihu is no longer in custody after posting bail. The case will be submitted to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office for possible charges.

This incident comes ahead of the 49ers' NFC Championship game in Philadelphia on Sunday, where the winning team will secure a spot in the 2023 Super Bowl. Omenihu is expected to play, the New York Post reported.
